I bought this as a small gift for wife, and she loved it. The rose came very well packed, and seems very well preserved. The wasn't any damage, and any imperfections were natural. The included stand is made of plastic and nothing special. But it gets the job done. The gold plating looks good but don't be fooled that this rose has any monetary value from being plated with gold. It probably contains less than a dollars worth of gold. I bought it as an alternative to the usual dozen roses that go in the garbage after about a week. My wife was happy, so I'm happy.
I bought this for my mother to remember her mom. My grandmother passed a couple years ago an she loved blue roses. My mom had been looking for somthing to look at and remember the good times. So when i found this beautifully preserved blue rose i was ecstatic!! I love it an my mom loves it!! Super happy with it!!
This was purchased for my mother-in-law from my father-in-law for valentines day and she practically cried when she opened it. The color in person is breathtaking and so vibrant. The details on the rose alone are stunning. I absolutely recommend this to any one out there trying to get something simple but with a lot of meaning behind it. DEFINITELY recommend.
I added this with the gold flower and my daughters gushed over the anniversary gift to my wife. They all thought it looked like the flower and case from Beauty and the Beast. Looks wonderful and fits perfectly on the mantle.
